Join Jim and Greg as they welcome Louisville’s decision to end no-knock warrants. They also hammer Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan for claiming nothing is really different in Seattle, despite the creation of CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, where police are not allowed in and reports of violent crime are on the rise. And they welcome the news that the Lake of the Ozarks pool party and symptomatic hair stylists have not led to outbreaks of COVID-19. They also embark on fun tangents about “Law & Order” and the 2020 convention season.
Join Jim and Greg as they marvel at the SpaceX launch, celebrate the plummeting COVID-19 numbers in Italy, and unload on destructive rioters and feeble “leaders” as dozens of American cities descend into chaos.
Join Jim and Greg as they cheer good news on coronavirus immunity, testing, and treatment. They also break down German intelligence accusing China and the World Health Organization of hiding human-to-human transmission for weeks. And they groan as Dr. Fauci says the close contact required in football would make the sport a prime activity for spreading the virus.
On Thursday, the Justice Department announced it’s desire to drop the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, a move that does not come as much of a surprise following last week’s revelation that FBI agents went to interview him in the White House with the intent of getting him to lie or to admit something that could get him fired or prosecuted.
In a statement, the DOJ said the January 2017 interview was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis” and that it was dropping the case “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.”
So how did this case move from a Flynn guilty plea to the Justice Department wanting to dump the matter? Was Flynn the victim of a very shoddy process or are other lawyers right that the FBI used standard tactics in speaking with Flynn?
Former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Andrew C. McCarthy says the FBI conduct towards Flynn was highly improper and amounted to little more than an effort to get him to lie without any underlying criminal predicate.
McCarthy and Radio America’s Greg Corombos also discuss whether most Americans will see this as a decision made on the facts and the law or through their partisan lenses.
In addition, McCarthy discusses Ventura County, California, officials announcing that COVID-infected patients may be forced to leave their homes if others in the residence test negative and there is only one bathroom. Is that constitutional? And what does it say about how governments are responding to this crisis?
Don’t miss McCarthy’s insights on these two critical issues.
It’s all crazy again today! Join Jim and Greg as they slam Ventura County, California, for telling residents they won’t be allowed to stay home if they test positive for COVID and share a single bathroom with anyone not infected. They also hammer Joe Biden for proclaiming his innocence in the Tara Reade allegations but also vowing to deny due process to college students accused of sexual assault. And they throw up their hands as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says doctors and nurses who flocked to New York to help save lives will have to pay taxes for the time they were in the state.
The good martini has the day off, so brace for three bad ones! Join Jim and Greg as they question New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s failure to change state policy that sends some COVID-19 patients to nursing homes after leaving the hospital. They also cringe at new Senate polls in Montana and North Carolina. And they remain concerned about our food supply chain (and have flashbacks to the 1980’s) as Wendy’s announces some of their locations cannot serve burgers right now.
It’s all crazy today! Join Jim and Greg as we react to #MeToo activist Alyssa Milano suddenly finding a complicated gray area on assault allegations now that Joe Biden is one being accused. They also sigh as President Trump reportedly rejects polling data that suggests his coronavirus briefings could be hurting him politically and that he’s losing to Biden. And they recoil at the aggressive efforts to free prisoners under the pretense of virus mitigation.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome encouraging news about COVID-19 testing, vaccines, and treatments that has Wall Street feeling bullish and suggesting that the Chinese communists were wrong again. They also hammer New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for breaking up the well-attended funeral of a rabbi in Brooklyn and warning that if it happens again there will be summons or arrests. And they dig into a new poll suggesting a majority of Americans would be inclined to suspend the November elections if coronavirus is still a major concern.
Join Jim and Greg for the Friday martinis! After a quick discussion on Michigan Democrats censuring one of their state representatives who recovered from COVID and thanked President Trump for mentioning hydroxychloroquine, they turn to three bad martinis. First, they’re bummed to hear Chinese trials of remdesivir were apparently a bust. They also grimace as the virus is significantly limiting production at meat processing plants. And they hammer Trump and the media over Thursday’s disinfectant dust-up.
Join Jim and Greg as they salute the stunning dedication of employees at a polypropylene plant in Pennsylvania. They’re also staggered by more than 26 million jobs lost and discuss how to re-engage the economy responsibly. And they assess data suggesting there were tens of thousands of coronavirus cases in American cities by March 1. Finally, they forecast tonight’s NFL Draft and Greg has fun imagining how National Review drafted Jim Geraghty back in the day.
